I use this to keep rain off the feeder as it is on a hanger pole and not near any trees a squirrel could jump from onto. At 20" wide, it does this very well. I would have given this 5 Stars, except the small nut that screws upwards from the threaded hook to keep the Baffle secure and level, has a tendency to loosen, so it needs tightened now and then. Not a big deal though. I am very happy with the Songbird Essentials Hanging Squirrel Baffle For Bird Feeders 20 in. (SESQ84)
I looked all over the net for a 20" squirrel baffle, which I use as a rain shield for my bird feeders. I found 22"ers, but all the other 20" baffles were way overpriced. This baffle is beautiful, and although it still cost more than I wanted, it was the least costly I found, and it serves my purpose. 4 stars instead of 5 because of the high price.
What is the maximum size pole around which I can use the Songbird Essentials Hanging Squirrel Baffle for Bird Feeders 20 in?
I have a 3+ inch pole, which is cemented into the ground and has 2 welded arms across the top to hold the feeders, so my questions are: 1) what is the max size pole this will fit? 2) does this wrap around the pole or does it install over the top?
